Hurricane Gustav nearing Louisiana Coast

Hurricane Gustav is bearing down on the Louisiana coast and conditions will worsen over the next 12 hours.

As of 4 a.m. CDT, Gustav was centered about 115 miles south-southeast of New Orleans and is moving to the northwest at 16 mph.

During Sunday, Gustav went through an ebb and flow of intensity. Through the morning hours, Hurricane Gustav continued to weaken but by the mid-afternoon hours the pressure once again dropped and its satellite appearance improved. During the late night hour, however, intensity fluctuations stabilized. All this said, Gustav continues to be a dangerous Category 3 hurricane and will make landfall this morning.
